Cansortium Inc., a vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis company operating under the FLUENT brand, announced it is moving its headquarters from Miami to the Westshore District of Tampa, Florida.
Over the next four months, the company plans to create more than 30 new jobs in administration, finance, human resources, marketing, sales, operations and other key roles, with an average salary of $100K.
“We’re extremely grateful to the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council (“EDC”) and the Tampa community as a whole for welcoming us with open arms,” said FLUENT CEO Robert Beasley.
“Our ultimate goal with this relocation is to connect the brain with the heart of the company and centralize our workforce. Tampa is already a major hub for our cultivation and production facilities, and we continue to be impressed with the city’s large talent pool, business-friendly policies, and overall quality of life. We believe our relocation is not only the best decision for our employees and culture, but a smart, fiscally responsible decision for the company’s shareholders. We look forward to providing good-paying jobs to the Tampa community as FLUENT further scales its operations in Florida.”
“FLUENT has already had a presence in the Tampa Bay Region and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome the company’s headquarters to our own backyard,” said Angel Gonzalez, chair of the Tampa Bay EDC and regional president of SouthState Bank.
“Listed as the best place to live in the Sunshine State, we are proud to be the new home for FLUENT’s global HQ, and look forward to working closely with the company’s leadership team to establish strong talent pipelines, connect transitioning employees with the local community and ensure that the company’s relocation is seamless.”
Earlier this year when Forbes compared Florida metropolitan areas using data from several platforms to measure variable criteria including home affordability, employment, and community well-being, Tampa was listed as the best place to live in Florida. The Forbes ranking cited the region’s many positive aspects for young adults and families, pristine beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and access to major sports teams, history museums, and platforms promoting the arts.
